Seed Tapes are an efficient work saver in the garden but they get so expensive sometimes that I have taken to making my own to save money too.

This is a fun project for the whole family to get in on, when my kids were too young to handle garden tools they had fun making them and it made them feel that they were an important part of things around the house.

I also like to do these at my leisure over the winter months to get ready for spring and summer plantings and get a jump on the growing season..

This episode shows 3 great gardening hacks of upcycling ways to repurpose items for growing food in small spaces.

The 3 x examples of growing food using upcycled materials are: vertical grow wall using old pallets; old jars; and a mini greenhouse made from recycled plastic containers.

This is the fourth episode in our growing food in small spaces series

( see Ep1 here https://youtu.be/Nh0ol-eAN2U and Ep2 https://youtu.be/jkWWB9O2wQ8 and Ep3 https://youtu.be/RUpR6nGLFmw )

This Hydroponic setup is easy, cheap, quick, and can be made for under $5.

I recommend for beginning hydroponic growers all the way up to advanced hydroponic growers. No need for complex systems, and you can have fun, and get hands on with this super simple DIY version.

Give hydroponics a try today!

This video about how to make a vertical hydroponic using PVC pipe 4 inch.

Scott Dekarske of Wet-Werk Hydroponics in Memphis, TN, and Master Gardener, Stephan Leonard, show how to assemble an inexpensive aeroponics system. It only takes a few hours to assemble this system.

SPACE10 is a research and design lab on a mission to enable a better everyday life for people and planet.

-We research the societal, environmental and technical shifts likely to impact people’s everyday lives-

We design inclusive, circular and digitally-enabled solutions for people and the planet.

We build and facilitate a global research and design community and engage them in our projects to accelerate our mission.

In this case study we go through Jacob and Anna’s backyard Geodesic dome. This dome was designed and built by them for lass that $1000. This greenhouse extends the short season in Didsbury Alberta to close to 200 days and allows them to grow fantastic vegetables. The greenhouse has a unique heat storage system that moves the heat from the air to a water storage tank.

Description: Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is working with NASA to help improve food production for long duration space travel. Together, we’re calling on makers across America to submit new designs for gardening systems to be used aboard spacecraft.

Problem– Current spacecraft have minimal space for astronauts to live and work, leaving very little room for anything else. Aboard spacecraft, plant growing environments must be small, placing limits on the amount of food that can be produced. Plant environments on ISS are cube-shaped spaces with lights attached to one inner surface (the top) and the plant root zone attached to the opposite (bottom) inner surface. When plants are small, there will be empty space above them. As plants grow, leaf surfaces become closer to the light, creating empty space underneath.

Challenge– We are seeking new designs and strategies to make better use of the available growing space throughout the life of the plants. Design, build and test a system that uses 3D growing space efficiently to maximize food production. Remember there is no up or down in microgravity, but plants will grow toward the light.
Open to high school, college, and professional teams. Designs must be submitted by February 3, 2020, and the winning designs will be announced February 14, 2020. Judges for this contest will include NASA engineers and botanists, and winning proposals will be considered for implementation on future NASA missions.
